A simple drop cookie with crushed pineapple and a pineapple glaze.


  • For the cookies:
  • 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 8-ounce can of crushed pineapple, drained (save the juice)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • For the glaze:
  • 3 cups powdered sugar

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons pineapple juice


  • Make the cookies:
  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Cream shortening and sugar until light, then beat in egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add drained pineapple and mix well. Stir in flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls on cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Don’t overcook. Remove and cool for about 5 minutes before glazing.

yes, they were a little bland but I frosted them with a orange zest icing and they were very good

These cookies are refreshing, because of the pineapple flavor in the cookie and the icing. I made them with fresh pineapple for the cookie and the icing. These are for anytime of the year.

Will make these again and not just at Christmas. I got about 3 dozen from the recipe. They needed the sweetness in the glaze. Cookies held up well to being frozen and actually tasted better the second day.
